Because I've had great experiences with Kimpton properties, I booked here when the Eventi in New York was sold out, even though this added a cab ride versus other hotel brands closer to my business meeting. Nothing about my experience was special. The decor and amenities were typically cool, but my room was just three floors up and facing the... More

I booked this hotel for 5 day stays last week based on the majority positive reviews. I wished I had read the review posted by ellieinboston on February 24, 2013 before I booked the hotel.

This was my 3rd stay at Ink48 and as always the staff were excellent, really helpful, freindly and very relaxed. The location is great, easy access downtown with great views of the river and the New York skyline, highly recommend the hotel to fellow travellers.

The hotel is situated near the Hudson in Hell's Kitchen. Our room (city view king) offered an incredible view of the city throughout the day. Upstairs the rooftop terrace Press Lounge offers a fantastic location to grab a drink overlooking the city. As all Kimptons go, there is a great wine reception at 5pm and the service is always impeccable.... More

During our recent three night stay at this hotel we were delighted with the location. Easy walk to Times Square and the Theater District. There are numerous wonderful restaurants nearby in Hell's Kitchen and the concierge is happy to make a recommendation. The rooms were also great.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
